Lovely! What if I wore this?

Delicious Heavy Red Outfit. (The real reason I’m trying to lose weight)

What if I bought this and wore it to work instead? Talk about letting your inner-self out to play.

On a side note, nowhere in the dress code does it say women MUST wear bras…. Maybe it is time to bring back bra burning

Jackie O Goes Goth

Posted in Art, Entertainment, Life, Uncategorized, Writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 12, 2012 by urbannight

I wish I had some photos or any drawing ability.  They you could have some visuals.

Several years ago, Sears or Yonkers (I think) had done a line of clothes that seemed to point back to Jackie O’s style when she was First Lady.  But they were in pink, black, and grey.  They were cute.

But I couldn’t really get them out of my mind.  Ever since then, I keep thinking that a line of cute Goth clothes based on former First Lady Jackie Kennedy’s style would be fund to have. 

So I think I’ll browse pattern books and try to find some old patterns or some retro patterns that suit the look and maybe I’ll break down and try to make a few things. 

We will see if I can actually find patterns first.  If I can, I may have yet another big project to document for public viewing.

The Trouble With Jeans

Posted in Life, Uncategorized, Writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 11, 2012 by urbannight

I have several issues w/ Jeans.  Even when I was skinny I had enough problems that I hated them.  But I hate seeing them on people anymore.

1. In the 90’s, we had a lot of cuts of jeans.  Normal Jeans, Boy Cut, Low Riders.  These days low riders are different.  You never even hear of Boy Cut as the now normal jean is the boy cut.  And normal jeans are now called Mom Jeans.

2. I hate this development for a variety of reasons.

3. Reason 1.  Heathy girls who are not overweight and would look good in my idea of normal jeans have a muffin top in the ‘new’ normal jeans.  So it makes young girls how are healthy and shapely think they are fat and that they need to lose weight.

4. Reason 2.  When someone actually does wear real, normal jeans, everyone starts yelling and screaming that they must be gaining weight and getting fat because no one wear that kind of jean otherwise. 

5. Reason 3.  The pockets.  ARG!!!!!  They moved the waist down to the hips and then they moved the pockets farther down so that they are still the same distance down from the waistband.  This Looks Horrible.  Pockets now are half on the butt and half on the thighs.  It looks terrible.  Did I say that already? Can I say it again? It Looks Terrible.  Pockets should create this nice frame on the butt cheeks. 

I see girls wearing jeans and because they sit lower on the hips there is nothing holding them up.  They have to be a bit too tight to keep them up or you see girls constantly pulling up their pants.  And decorative pockets just look like crap.  Either stop using decorative stitches or get rid of the pockets completely. 

Since I don’t think jeans are ever going to go back to normal, I will probably never wear a pair again. 

I am thankful for one thing.  The attempt to have the fly open and folded over to display pretty panties as a fashion statement died after about a month.  Maybe less.  That was one of the worst fashion statements ever.
